Not our problem.”

Solidar. You need to read the article properly before commenting. Also, buying yourself an atlas might also help.
The article isn’t saying anything at all about Russia in Syria.
It mentions Grozny, which isn’t in Syria at all. It’s referring to the Chechen war. Grozny is in the south of Russia.

Also, Russia never provoked a war in Syria. It was going on for 5 years before Russia got involved.

This US/NATO’s fomented conflict to have killed off 250,000+ and continued to-date with Kerry’s so-called “peace-deal” that simply armed rebels with more sophisticated arms leading to current-day prolonging of the killing-fields.

Senseless waste of US tax payer dollars spreading massive-grief – all in the name of yet-another – regime-change.

Muslim civil wars = muslim problem.

I don’t care what twitter says.
